Some of the beliefs of both sides may seem totally absurd to the other.

Many scientists believe in a 'creator'. One theory being tested at this moment is the 'Hologram theory'. This theory says we are living basically in a video game. Nothing is there until we observe it. They believe just as we create characters in a video game so are we created. Put on your virtual 3D glasses and as you turn your head the program creates what is not there. Interesting. They believe that the entirety of the universe could be created in a computer with enough computing power.

So you see, some of the most forward thinking scientists believe in a creator.

Sure but the creator left strong evidence that we are descended from apes. Either he's ******* with us or that's actually the case.

Apes are five to eight times the strength of humans. Sounds like all animal to me. How come we evolved to be so much smarter but not stronger? I mean it disturbs me that today if I bench 250 my ape ancient cousin could still bench 2,000.

Or a Microcosm of how people like to take items of personal belief and make them a litmus test.

I can sit at a Liberty vs App ST game and enjoy it with anyone there regardless of belief. As a matter of fact, as a Christian I believe that I am to show the love of Christ to everyone. So, you and your school can be and believe whatever you want and the vast majority of Liberty folks will stand beside you and talk and cheer and all will be good. It all falls apart when a few select folks don't care to return the favor. They see people "like us" as stupid, or ignorant, or whatever and chose to taunt or marginalize base on who they think we are or what they think we believe.

It's sad to me that an athletics discussion has to turn in to this I'm right, no I'm right mess. I can accept that you are allowed to believe what you want, but it doesn't go the other way. Call it what you want, but this is why CUSA and SBC Presidents have excluded LU.

I get that we are talking about class content, but please remember that Liberty teaches both and let's the kids decide. Creation Studies is a religion class.

Anyway, I believe LU will be an FBS independant for years and years to come. Not only because of what I said above, but because I think it's to LUs best interest at this point.

Liberty just lost back-to-back games against Jacksonville State and St. Francis.

Any more questions?
